Spain: Princess Cristina faces new tax probe


Spanish Princess Cristina is facing a new probe over suspected fraud.

The daughter of King Juan Carlos had been named as suspected in a case of embezzlement against her husband, Iñaki Urdangarín, earlier this month, but the decision was overturned.

However, judge Jose Castro ordered a new investigation into her financial affairs after examining 10 years worth of tax returns submitted to the court in the case against her husband.

The probe into former handball star, Urdangarín, involves the misuse of millions of euros of public funds meant for sports events.

News of further investigation into the royal family’s alleged financial misdealings will do little for its public image at a time of economic hardship in Spain.
